‘Silicon Valley’ Creator Mike Judge Sheds Malibu Estate

SELLER: Mike Judge
LOCATION: Malibu, Calif.
PRICE: $4.3 million
SIZE: 3,696 square feet, 6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms

YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: A deep dive and a thorough perusal of publicly available property records reveals that a Malibu estate quietly owned for nearly a decade by animator-writer-producer-director-actor-musician Mike Judge has been sold at a substantial, $600,000-plus loss to an obviously wealthy financier and his wife for $4.3 million. Mister Judge, who created the gloriously and profoundly rude “Beavis and Butthead” animated series, appears to have purchased the 1.1-acre Point Dume property via trust in September 2007 for $4.919 million.

Listing details show the circa 1977, single-story ranch house, sprawled out on a low rise behind secured gates, was worked over in 2002 with a no doubt meticulous and costly if — in this property gossip’s humble and utterly meaningless opinion — stylistically antagonistic Craftsman flair and is arranged with five bedrooms and four bathrooms in 3,696 square feet. A nice-to-have but mostly beige and decoratively apathetic detached guesthouse or staff residence adds another bedroom and bathroom.

A bi-level foyer with glossy, reddish-toned hardwood floors and vaulted exposed beam ceiling links the fireplaced formal living room with the formal dining room, while the checkerboard tile floored kitchen — thoroughly and expensively equipped but, from a design point of view, about as thrilling as paste — offers all the culinary bells and whistles expected in a $4 million-plus house. The kitchen opens to a lounge area with fireplace and adjoining informal dining nook with window-lined, built-in banquette seating. A separate family room has another fireplace, more vaulted ceilings and wood and glass doors to the backyard. Terraces, porches and verandas along both the front and rear of the residence give way to rolling lawns, flowering gardens, a free-form swimming pool and spa and, next to the chain link-ringed tennis court at the rear of the property, the aforementioned guesthouse/staff residence. Listing details make some hay about how the property transfers with “Riviera II beach rights to Little Dume,” quite possibly one of the most exclusive and difficult for the hoi polloi to access beaches in all of Malibu.

Our research indicates Mister Judge — who, among many other projects, created, wrote, produced and/or directed animated series “King of the Hill” and the acclaimed Silicon Valley-skewering cable series “Silicon Valley” — also owns a large house in a prime pocket of Santa Monica that he acquired in late 2011 for $4.45 million. As far as we can tell, he also continues to own a stately, 7,300-ish-square-foot mini-mansion on a leafy cul-de-sac in the affluent Austin, Texas, neighborhood of Tarrytown that he snatched up over the summer of 2008 for an unknown amount.
